gen_object_display( obj_struct,indent )
function gen_object_display( obj_struct,indent )
%
% gen_object_display - general function to display an object's content
%
% format:   gen_object_display( obj_struct,indent )
%
% input:    obj_struct  - a copy of the object stored inside a structure
%           indent      - amount of "indent" when printing to the screen
%
% output:   to the screen
%
% example:  gen_object_display( struct( my_object_handle) );
%           gen_object_display( ny_structure );
%
% Correction History:
%  2006-11-01 - Jarek Tuszynski - added support for struct arrays
